During last night’s Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkaman, revealed that after the break, the writers would introduce the first openly gay character on the show. In doing so, Kirkman also gave a huge hint as to where our favorite band of survivors will be going, and what they will be doing, when the show comes back in February, 2015.
Warning, there are some major spoilers ahead. Robert Kirkman’s reveal was in response to the rumor that Daryl Dixon is gay, and he officially debunked that myth. So, who is this gay character, and what does his arrival mean for the group?
